My Daily Superfood Smoothie

In Cuisine, Superfood Smoothies by Caroline Ra

Each morning for several years now I have enjoyed an early morning smoothie made in my Vitamix. I love this routine and look forward to it upon rising. My early morning favorite has evolved over the years to become quite a dynamo of nutrition and taste. It melds beautifully with seasonal fruits – fresh or frozen. I especially enjoy adding avocado to create a mousse-like texture. Use the ideas in this recipe to create your own early morning favorite.
Yields: One 16-ounce Smoothie
Special Equipment: High-Powered Blender
Smoothie Ingredients:

2 Large Frozen Bananas, peeled, and cut into thirds

1/3 to 1/2 Ripe Avocado, fresh or frozen, cut into chunks

If you prefer a smoothie texture to a mousse-like texture, replace avocado with:
1 Tablespoon Coconut Butter

2 Tablespoons Pumpkin Seed Protein Powder

6 Chlorella Tablets or 1/2 teaspoon Chlorella Powder (broken-cell wall)

1 teaspoon Moringa Powder (nutrient-dense, iron-rich)

1/2 teaspoon pure Camu Camu Berry Powder (very high in Vitamin C)

1/2 teaspoon Matcha Tea Powder

1 Tablespoon Local Raw Honey or 1 pitted Medjool Date

1 cup Spring or Filtered Water, preferably cold

Prepare Smoothie:

Place all ingredients in blender container. Using the blender tamper, if your model comes with one, starting on low speed and building to high speed, blend until extra-smooth and creamy. Pour into a glass while scraping down the sides of the blender container. If using the avocado, grab a spoon. Prepare to have untold energy!
